Esme sat on the pristine white couch of her home, feeling alone. Alice and Jasper were taking a vacation in Milan and Rosalie and Emmett were on their honeymoon in Paris. Carlisle had been working nights all week. She sighed, feeling alone. Suddenly, Carlisle entered through the door.

Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside the window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A man after midnight!
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

She smiled and kissed him on the cheek.

“How was your day honey?” She asked, dutifully.

“Nothing too terribly exciting. Just a few accident victims.” He replied, noticing the devilish look in her eyes.

“You know, Edward and Bella are in their cottage with Renesmee, Rose and Emmett are honeymooning in Paris, and Alice and Jasper are away in Milan on vacation, so we have the house to ourselves.” She said, her hand trailing up and down his washboard abs. He smiled, and kissed him passionately. He carried her upstairs princess – style and they began right where they had left off.

***Two weeks later***
One more minute, just one more minute. Esme thought as she held the home pregnancy test in her hand. She had high hopes that the test would read yes. She looked at her watch. The time was up. She looked at the test and a little pink plus stared her back in the face.
Later on that night, the Cullen home was set afire by congratulations, hugs, and fond hopes for their new brother or sister. Esme smiled and put her hands on top of her stomach, already fantasizing about the baby kicking or seeing it on the ultra sound. She could not help but smile as she thought:

I’m pregnant. Finally!
